Condominium ownership comes with its fair share of perks, from never needing to do lawn-care to having a built-in social network all around you. And on top of all that, you get to renovate stuff—indeed, you’ve found yourself with your next flooring change right around the corner!
While condos generally are versatile spaces that are served well by a variety of flooring types, certain materials will suit your home-sweet-home better than others. UB Hardwoods, your Plymouth providers of everything from hardwood flooring to floor installation services, discusses a few top picks for condos below.
Prefinished Hardwood Flooring
Wood flooring tops our rec lists quite frequently, and for good reason—it’s tough, solid, and one of the most long-lasting floorings out there. As a bonus, it has got classical good looks that go well with almost all kinds of decor styles, from modern to rustic. To see a few in-vogue hardwood styles, check out our flooring blog “Top Prefinished Hardwood Flooring Trends for 2021.”
As far as condos go, this flooring type looks amazing when laid from room to room, where the parallel lines create the illusion of more space. Light colors—think tawny shades and pale grays—can make for an airy, open vibe.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring
If you’re looking for flooring that’s waterproof, but still physically tough, luxury vinyl floors are where it’s at. True to its name, luxury vinyl may run you a little more than standard vinyl flooring, but you’ll reap the benefits in the forms of extra durability. Plus, it is also available in a wide variety of trendy styles; it can even be made to look like hardwood flooring!
We recommend this kind of flooring in condo kitchens and bathrooms—anywhere you need water-tightness but can’t compromise on good looks. That being said, its versatility makes it a great fit in pretty much any room.
Engineered Hardwood Flooring
With their particleboard innards and hardwood overlay, engineered hardwood boasts great flexibility for a genuine-wood flooring. It also has the same great looks as its full-hardwood cousin. This flooring type is thus a wonderful fit for condos that have humidity issues, but where the floor underfoot must be real wood. Warping? Not on engineered hardwood’s watch.
